    I know someone that always replies with short texts. I don't mind coming up with other stuff to talk about but if that happens too often then that's just annoying
    Ugh, why do you still reply then? Jeez, I hate leading conversations - I much prefer it when girls do it.

    But if I don't reply it just makes me seem rude or something

    Don't reply with one word answers or short phrases like "yeah" "I'm sorry" "oh right" because it means the girl will have to find something else to talk about.

    Come on now, that's just being lazy...
    Lel I hope she's taking the piss.

    Is that whats its come to? Honestly some women are a bit.......

    My two cents is to have a laugh with online dating. Be mighty depressing otherwise.

    Honesty is a virtue, you should just tell him straight or he's not going to stop.

    Don't text multiple times if I haven't answered for an hour or two. I'll talk when I'm free (and if I'm not wanting to talk to you, spamming me isn't improving your chances). Sounds harsh but it's irritating.

    On the positive side, be fun and/or interesting. Either is good. Tell stories, talk about life, the universe and everything. Also dad jokes work on me, but I might be weird.

    Finally, reasonable (not perfect) grammar and spelling is helpful. If you use a semicolon you've gone too far.

    Just don't be overly interested/boring.

    I wouldn't really know texting etiquette though, all the numbers I get end up being flakes after about five messages.
    On dating sites?

    That happens to everyone. They flake because they have too many options.

    She might like you, but in like 2 days she'll match with a guy that she fancies more, focus on him and stop responding to you.

    I never understood why women put all their eggs in one basket like that, but they're not rational, so who knows.

    seriously what is it with guys doing that?! 5 seconds into the conversation and they send me several **** pics that i didn't ask for! ffs we're not men, we don't get turned on by the site of your wrinkly, tiny cocks. in fact if its too small we show it to our friends and have a good laugh!

    STOP. SENDING. ****. PICS. MEN!!! unless she asks for them...
    Women do like **** pics, but you gotta have like a pornstar ****. Most guys ofc do not have pornstar ****.

    Girls like making boys work for stuff so don't give up if she gives you the cold shoulder.
    Stay interesting but not obnoxious.

    We do not like being sent a "last chicken in the shop" photo, even if it's a turkey.

    Don't be shy.
    Don't expect her to text you first every time. I'm not gonna do it all the time it makes me look desperate when I'm not and also gives me the image you guys aren't interested.
    DO NOT BOAST. I hate that.
    Remain consistent in the amount you text and explain for breaks. If you drop the amount you are texting someone gives the illusion you are not interested.
    Try to not drunk text. Its never great trying to understand ' hew yoi foible in rhus today?'
    Do attempt to make dates/meet up. No-one wants to be texting for ever and it gets weird after a bit.
    Please ask us some questions. 'How was your day?'. Make it seem like you want to know more about us.
    No cheesy OTT flirting. ' I could make you smile like a cheshire cat' - legit.
    I could go on and on and on...

    use texting mainly to set up dates and what not -- you don't want to just be some kind of penpal to her. Only text back if she enjoys texting, and even then, don't text as much as her. Vary the time between you reply -- sometimes rather quick, sometimes slow. if she gets annoyed, you don't owe her an apology; you're a busy guy.

    Don't continually ask her nonsense like how her day was if you're only dating her for now - that's what friends do.

    Keep it funny, banterous etc.

    Calibrate with her. If she's texting something small don't give her big answers and whatnot and vice versa

    Once you're in a relationship, do whatever you want
